About Me

I am a PhD student in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society at Arizona State University. I am also an Associate Editor of Applied Biosafety and a Past-President of ABSA International.

As a PhD student studying the Human and Social Dimensions of Science and Technology, I use qualitative and quantitative analysis, controversy studies and future thinking to investigate the dis/connections between policymakers, implementers, and the public, with a goal of improving biological safety and security practices around the world.

My PhD advisor is Dr. Kathleen Vogel.
